Tally.ERP 9 :New Face of Tally is here, Download for Free

Jumping a leap ahead Tally has introduced its next generation software version of Tally. Tally.ERP 9 is the next version from Tally's stable. Flooded with many advanced features Tally has tried to place this software for those who need more then Accounting software and cannot buy heavy and costly ERP software. The nomenclature of software has been done in way to show best of the both worlds i.e. The same old trusted Tally 9 software and now the ERP embedded in it. So it became Tally.ERP 9. Tally has put ERP software in 15.4mb, this is the wonder which only Tally can do.

The software is free for all existing Tally 9 customers and would cost Just Rs. 3600/- + taxes for users of Tally 7.2 and Tally 6.3. But educational version is free for download for everybody. Tally 9 customers can upgrade free of cost but they should first understand the license process and activation process. More over Tally Gold now means only 10 users.
